At this point, if Cubs ace pitcher Jake Arrieta lets more than one opposing batter on base before the fifth inning it’s a surprise.

Sunday night the Cubs played their final game against the Pirates at Wrigley Field. Arrieta was perfect through six innings. It wasn’t until Gregory Polanco lead off the seventh inning with a single to left field that a Pirates player reached the base path.

Arrieta did a little of everything Sunday night. Not only was he dominant on the mound, he also hit a solo home run in the second inning to extend the Cubs lead to 2-0.

After Polanco’s single, the Pirates mounted a short lived attack. Arrieta hit Andrew McCutchen, putting runners on first and second with only one out. However, an Aramis Ramirez double play ended the inning.
